Importance of Safety Plans for Commercial Sites

12/9/2021 (Permalink)

As Benjamin Franklin once said, “If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.”

Commercial buildings, which include offices, restaurants, shops, and anything retail related or a place that brings in income, have a large number of employees of customers in them every day.  The importance of Safety Plans in case of emergencies in these types of facilities can save lives. 

Safety Plans are put in place in case of emergencies and natural disasters. Without a safety plan, many things can and will go wrong.  With a safety plan, you and your entire company will know what to do, who to call, and how to handle anything thrown at them.  A company becomes a much safer company when a safety plan is put in measure.

For instance, worker safety is crucial when operating a business.  With a Safety Plan and by executing such plan, employees are in much safer working conditions and less likely to have an injuring or fatal accident.  If an incident does happen however, the Safety Plan will have an exact protocol to follow to insure everything is handled in the most proper and efficient way possible. 

A Safety Plan will also contain protocols to follow in case of natural disasters.  A solid Safety Plan will have an evacuation route map, all of the available exits listed, and a step by step what-to-do under certain events.  These events may include a fire, tornado, hurricane, flood or other such disaster.

Here at SERVPRO of Fredericksburg, we have a detailed Safety Plan that is followed and protocols executed daily when using equipment. We value safety of not only our employees but our clients also.
